Project Profile:

Cantera

Project Summary

This is a new installation, so parts of it had not filled in with grass. Some of the seeding, done with straw mulch, a technique we do not recommend, didn’t germinate well and grow into good coverage with many grass plants. It’s best to get a really good start with good grass coverage on new installations. The root system will intertwine with the rings and grid and make for a unified strong surface. Note - If your site doesn’t have good grass coverage, then topdress with 1/4” sand and then re-seed or apply a layer of hydromulch. Older installations will require fertilization with NPK plus micronutrients to maintain a dense grass coverage.
